    Default Squirrel or neighbor with a grudge?

    Does this look like it's cut or a squirrel bite? I keep finding multiple failures in my mini light strings and many are wire breaks that looks like cuts at and around bulb bases like this one

    My neighbor refers to them as "tree rats". I guess there is a reason for that attitude.
    Definitely a critter doing this. (I'll give the squirrels the benefit of the doubt, at least until it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt.)

    I had a wire "cut" three times. I thought it was a neighbor also, turned out the wire was blocking a path used by a rabbit. He didn't like it there. Lucky for him he bit it while it was unpowered. Moved the wire and all was well.
